Killington Closes June 1 — And it’s Free

Free t-shirts, the Umbrella Bars in full swing, BBQs firing up, live music and people shredding Superstar…. Yes, it’s still happening.  The Beast of the East ain’t ready to call it a winter yet—not with the glacier snowmakers laid down on Superstar (to host the Audi World Cup last Thanksgiving)  still skiing strong.

So, for the first time in 15 years, Killington is going to stay open for lift-served skiing and riding through  Thursday, June 1.  

Even better news? It’s free. The last time Killington was opened for June skiing was in 2002. Its record for the latest skiing? June 22, 1997.

After hosting its first-ever World Cup ski racing event last Thanksgiving Weekend and breaking US ski race attendance records with a crowd of 30,000, Killington used its snowmaking technology and experience to continue stockpiling snow on its Superstar trail throughout the winter and spring, resulting in a snowpack up to 30 feet deep.

Earlier this week, Killington’s grooming team patched weak areas and created a continuous snow surface on Superstar, but some walking will be required during the final operating day of the ski and snowboard season.

Shred it while you can.
